Hair Metal Bands by Power Ballad

Ah the 80's, the decade when Heavy Metal invaded with a vengeance, and then became a mainstream sensation thanks to the lure of the subgenre known as Hair Metal. One thing that all hair metal bands had in common was their power ballad singles, and they all had one (or at least one per album). Let's see how many of the bands you can identify just by their power ballads.
Alternate spellings may exist.
